Toshiba Satellite P855

 

The 15.6-inch mainstream laptop is the crew-cab pickup of the computer world. A lot of different people buy them for a lot of different reasons. That means the chassis must be flexible and capable of handling the expectations of people laying down a...

Attractive but practical exterior ; Very little bloatware ; Great Harmon/Kardon speakers ; Quick performance ; Entry-level version is well priced

Mushy keyboard feel ; Poor battery life ; Expensive variants aren’t a good value

Toshiba’s P855 is a beautifully designed entry into the mainstream segment. It’s certainly one of the better-looking PCs available and, unlike similarly shiny competitors...

Toshiba Satellite P855-32G review

 

Great performance at a reasonably low price for this 15-incher

Plenty of power ; Great screen ; Premium speaker setup ; Huge array of connections ; Handles the latest gaming

Poor keyboard ; Too much bloatware ; No 1080p ; No Blu-ray drive ; Average battery life

The Toshiba P855 is one of the better conventional laptops we've seen of late, offering a lot of performance for a relatively small price tag.

Toshiba Satellite P855-32J review

 

The Toshiba P855-32J doesn't go all-out for the senses, and Toshiba has chosen to eschew the crazy case designs and colour schemes popular with the likes of Alienware. The Toshiba P855-32J tips the scales at around 2.94kg – so the laptop certainly...

Toshiba Satellite P855-307 review

 

Intel's latest processor range, previously known as Ivy Bridge, has been a long time coming. Delays and embargoes meant we were waiting for the first chips to arrive for months, but now that we've finally got our hands on an Ivy Bridge laptop, we can...

A strong first outing for Ivy Bridge, although the Satellite’s screen is slightly disappointing given the price

Toshiba Satellite P855

 

A laptop with an aluminium-coated body and glasses-free 3D screen. Is it worth forgetting Ultrabooks for?

The Toshiba Satellite P855 isn’t a big step forward in any respect, but is a respectable mid/high-end laptop. It uses a fairly good-looking aluminium-coated body, has decent connectivity and starts at a reasonable £599, sans 3D. We’re not convinced the...

The keyboard isn't too bad once you get used to it. The mouse is really horrible, but if you have an external mouse / keyboard AND you don't use the real one it's all good.

Enjoy when it is not down. I bought the Sat. S855 model 6 months ago and had to have HDD serviced twice. And tech support gives you the run around.
